Finite Element Analysis of Transient Thermoelastic Fracture Problems
This paper studies the transient singular characteristics of heat flux near the crack-tip for various boundary conditions on crack surfaces. A highly accurate hybrid finite element procedure is developed herein to analyze the transient thermoelastic fracture problems. The influence of natural convection on the computation of temperature distributions and thermal stress intensity factors is also presented.
